Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany your home away from home

The region of Saxony-Anhlat is in the central north east of Germany and is one of 16 member states. It was formerly part of the Federal state of East Germany. The capital of the region is the beautiful town of Magdeburg. This scenic area is due in part to its location on the banks of the Elbe and Saale rivers and is at the heart of German history. The Reformation began at Wittenberg where Martin Luther taught at the university. Saxony-Anhalt includes the Harz Mountains and the Saale-Unstut region to the southeast of the mountains is dotted with castles. Further north are the fertile Magdeburger Börde and the Altmark heathlands.

The apartment is clean and well fitted out with all that you would require, including towels and sheets. The owners are very helpful and welcoming. Things to note. The apartment is on the first floor with stair access from a common lobby that will provide access to 3 further apartments in the future. With the windows open there is some street noise from the cobbles but all goes very quite after 11pm. Quedlinburg is a very special place with loads to do and see. So many timber buildings with loads of real charm. The public transport is excellent with the train station only 5 minutes away. The Harz tour card is excellent value. The town brewery is a great place for a meal and a beer. We highly recommend this apartment and Quedlinburg and look forward to returning.
